I've seen this. It's a version of Poe's story Hop-Frog. The dwarf character Hop Frog and his love, Trippetta, were the only humans in the show. The nobles that harassed him were all big, weird puppets.

Edit: Got it! It was an adaptation called "Fool's Fire," by Julie Taymore. It was released in 1992.

Thank you so much Erica B! That's got to be it.

I can't tell you how often I've searched for dwarf story on PBS in Google without luck.

I've been a Poe fan since at least middle school (early 80's for me). I managed to stumble upon this show on PBS about 1/4 of the way through and it stuck with me even after all this time. It was a delightfully freaky show!
